think it should be a fight or not is a separate question. he was going to have a fight. it was john mccain, kelly ayotte, lindsey graham, the three of those senators who were mounting this fight. others who were concerned about the fact that susan rice got certain information about what happened in benghazi, came on "meet the press," described it in the way that was consistent with the information that she was given despite the fact that there were differences within the government about whether this was an attack or a spontaneous event. and the reality is i think that that was a smaller issue than the larger issue of debate, which is what does america do in terms of its footprint in countries like libya where we have fewer forces and we don't really want to reconstitute the entire country. that's what i think the debate was all about. but, again, it comes back to the political reality that the president had a personal fight on his hands. this is a friend of his. this is somebody who has served as national security team in a very close way going back to his campaign. was u.n. ambassador. s

't. the thing that really killed it, they understood, john mccain, lindsey graham, kelly ayotte opposed her. the thing that killed it when she met susan collins who introduced her at her confirmation hearing and been a rise supporter and said there were serious questions about the nomination. at that point the handwriting was on the wall. bill: she is considered a moderate, if you have a good chance of getting through that would be the sign you have a chance but what graham just said, she was the most politically compliant person they could find, that's loaded. >> well i mean this goes back to what she said in the aftermath of those benghazi attacks when she said it wasn't a terrorist act. it was the result of spontaneous protests against that islamic video. we know that susan rice was picked in part because of her intense loyalty to president obama. not like she is the best-loved person in washington. it is the fact she has been with the president for quite a while. she was a clinton person and went with obama early in 2006 and 2007. there is a lot of loyalty there and the president could

covered intensely. the meetings that she had with john mccain and lindsey graham but more importantly with people who she mahad meetings with tha were on the fence. instead of answering what the senator thought were mundane questions, she got very defensive and the feelings about susan collins and others, if she can't deal with united states senators who are kind of fellow americans, so to speak, how is she going to be on the world stage when she's dealing with some of the world's foes. so that was a big concern here. it certainly was political as well. that was a big concern from those senators who were not as political. there's a lot of respect for her. people think that she's very, very smart, that she knows the issues. there is some concern, not just from republicans but also democrats i've talked to about her personality, whether she had the personality to be the secretary of state and to represent the u.s. on the world stage. >> those statements, i take it, from either senator mccain, lindsey graham or ayotte? >> reporter: senator graham told me especially there was no way he wa

. >> there are numerous republicans, john mccain, lindsey graham, a barraso who sates i would support john kerry as secretary of state who in their words would cruise through a nomination. and how would an affect if those two are in place? >> if you like what's in the last four years, you're going to get more of the same. deep defense cuts. if you had john kerry as secretary of defense. what we need is a strong secretary of defense, in spite of drawdowns and budget cuts is going to project strength. john kerry is not going to do that. he was against the gulf war, he was for the iraq war before he was against it, and he wanted to withdraw from afghanistan sooner than 2013. along those lines he's got a track record that sort of diminishes defense capability as opposed to building it up. we can't afford that. >> who would you like to see on this? >> i'm not in a position to make that kind of nomination. drastically different perspective than these two, and another piece on these they're differential to international institutions, u.n., criminal courts, that i think that diminishes american democrac

. at least lindsey graham and john mccain seem to be of one mind on this. >> going back to john mccain, though, this is a case of senatorial stalking. he was -- he had to give up the chairmanship of the armed services committee. he was term limited out in terms of the republican roles, so he went looking for another place where he could kind of do the same thing. >> he has found a corner of his own, but i think what is ironic here, mark, is that the republicans have rallied around john kerry anti-war hero who they swift boated less than ten years ago as the new secretary of state. >> the voice of reason. no, it's amazing to see how this happens. he and john mccain are best friends again. he called him mr. president the other day. what did he call him, mr. secretary. >> mr. secretary and mr. president. >> anyway, yes. >> karen, does the president lose face if he backs down on susan rice? >> he does. so i think the president's condition is going to continue to be bring it on. i do. >> bring it on, she says. thank you to my friends here for bringing it on. that is all for now. i will

's also deeply political, you know. john mccain is a terribly sore loser. susan rice said some things in 2008 defending her candidate for president. he's never forgiven her. lindsey graham, all the man cares about is fighting off a tea party challenger. he gets to go back to south carolina and he gets to say i thwarted the president, the newly-reelected president, and i took down a wonderful african american woman. i have to say i don't know that they're deliberately putting race in the equation, but maybe there's something unconscious about it. but a lot of the people who have been targeted in the situation have been african americans. i don't know how it works out that way. but it has. it's a sad day. susan rice will be fine. she's going to go on and do great things for the country. but we've lost a public servant. and the president has been thwarted. and i think this boeds terribly for the supposed, new bipartisan cooperation that we're all supposed to hope for. >> congresswoman, we've also seen a blatant double standard. in november, matt lowe, he con fronted mccane about why he s

on her and said i'm going to give her a break. see what she has to say. mccain, lindsey graham and colin, couple -- and ayotte spent hours with her behind closed doors and came out with a face like uh-oh, this is going to be a problem. they were trying to give her the benefit of the doubt and realized they couldn't she has no choice. >> dana: there is an art of floating somebody's fame for something, they didn't do it well. >> andrea: they created this mess from day one. they floated her name. they are the ones that pushed it. now, they think this is good for them. it really do think this is good for them. the president issued a statement that said we can't believe, we're disappointed in republicans. if i were her, i would say you know what? spare me. you have have done enough to hurt me. now i look like a victim. she should have said weeks ago i think we talked about this on america's newsroom, she should say i don't want it. >> dana: happy where i am. >> bob: if you float a name for secretary of state and don't do it by giving her talking points on controversial issue and put it on a t
